The report alleges that the previous administration diverted a total of N423 billion, leaving the state with significant debt.

The speaker of the Kaduna state assembly, Yusuf Liman, received the report and acknowledged the findings, which suggest widespread financial mismanagement and potential corruption during El-Rufai's tenure.
